3:00 am
it makes it so much better to do homework when you're at home. internet essentials from comcast. helping to bridge the digital divide. breaking news this morning, a suspect you see him there, who allegedly terrorized motorists for weeks has bip arrested in arizona. swat teams stormed a walmart to make this arrest happen. we are grateful to have you with us. pleasure to be with you this morning. let's talk about the breaking.
3:01 am
police say he is linked to four of the shootings where he was targeting vehicles. >> look at this tweet from the governor. he tweets we got them. although testifying arizonaens will have some satisfaction from the arrest. they say there may be other suspect still out there. >> we have made an arrest in the i-10 shootings that occurred on august 29th and 31, 2015. the subject is in custody because the weapon he owned is forensically linked to these crimes. are there others out there? are the copy cats? that is possible. >> let's bring in nick valencia. what else do we know about the arrest? >> this comes after nearly three weeks of terror in the phoenix
3:02 am
area. this suspect leslie martin allen jr. was taken into custody late last night in a glen dale, arizona suburb. he was cornered -- he was frenzly linked to the first four of the shootings that happened in this area from cars and big rigs seemingly targeted at random. last night they held a press conference announcing this arrest. >> yes, he was arrested at that walmart. with a woman and a 5-year-old child. they were not taken into custody. and he was. and that's about all i can say. >> police emphasize there could be other copy cat shooters in this case over the course of the last three weeks. we've been there on the ground reporting this from bullets to projectiles on that busy
3:03 am
interstate 10 freeway. this suspect linked to the first four of 11 shootings that happened over the course of the last three weeks. there could be others out there that police are looking for. >> have investigators discussed the types of charges the suspect will face? >> we haven't heard that just yet. officially charges have not been filed against this 21-year-old leslie martin allen jr. his father was interviewed by local affiliates yesterday. he wills they have the wrong guy. >> when we talk about the potential of more suspects being out there, are we talking about people who worked with this man or copy cats potentially? >> remember, last week, sara sidner has been reporting for us. three people of interest were taken into custody. two were released one was arrested on an unrelated drug charge. this is really reminiscent of something that happened there
3:04 am
ten years ago. there was another serial shooter there ten years ago. thereabout are a lot of nervous residents in the area. not so sure they can rest easier. there could be others out there. >> nick valencia for us. thank you. >> you bet. new support and potentially some big money to get joe biden to run for president. a letter from nearly 50 top democratic fund raisers is urging the vice president to enter inrace. here's an excerpt from it. the obama biden administration has been a success. to finish the job america needs a lead erwho is respected home and abroad and understands the problem facing american families. in our opinion the next president must be joe biden. if he announced he's running
3:05 am
we're all in. it's a campaign we know he will win. the vice president has been considerkish a for some time. he and his family are weighing whether they have the emotional endurance as they grieve for his son, beau biden. let's talk about this now with professor of political science jason johnson. good to have you back with us. what do you think about this? nearly -- not just supporters but big money folks here. >> i think it's a sign that there are people who really like joe biden. but that's something we've known for a long time. but joe biden running -- you know, money is not the issue with his family. the issue that he has to figure out is one, as he said repeatedly whether he and his family are emotionally prepared pfor it. and two, strategically can he beat hillary clinton. at this point he doesn't want to run against her for good show e. he's got to have maybe three
3:06 am
clear pathways to not only beat hillary and also win the presidency. >> this letter does not name secretary clinton specifically. but there are some suggestion,s here that they point out, that, quote, joe biden is an authentic leader pointing out some would say some of the problems that hillary clinton is facing with his perception of authenticity. no one is better prepared for the presidency than joe biden. preparation and resume strongest points for hillary clinton. i wonder if you expect she will respond in some way? i'm sure she'll get a question as she heads to the dinner of the event you're going to this weekend. >> yeah, i mean we will call that a subtweet. you know. you know, we're talking about authenticity and honesty they're clearly making a reference to hillary clinton. that are going to be hovering around each other. i'm going to the prayer
3:07 am
breakfast at the dinner. joe biden and hillary clinton will be in the audience. hillary knows her primary goal right now, honestly is to win this nomination and secure herself as the number one choice in the democratic primary states and to stave off bernie sanders. i don't think she's that concerned about joe biden right now. because she realizes that any focus on him takes away from what her ultimate goal is which is staying in the lead or staying tied. >> let's talk about the gop. waiting to see if donald trump will address the controversy with the statement that muslims are in the country and the president is muslim. >> people are entitled tool their opinions. we have a first amendment for a reason. people can stand up and say what they want. you don't have to agree or like
3:08 am
it. >> do you believe president obama is a muslim. >> the president says he's a christian. look, ladies and gentlemen i'm not playing this game that you guys want to play. the president can defend himself. he didn't need rick santorum to defend him. he's got you doing that well. >> barack obama is a talented man. by the way, he's an american. he's a christian. his problem isn't the fact he was born here or that he's -- what his faith is. his problem is he's a progressive liberal that tears down anyone he disagrees with him. >> he should have known what that man was asking was not only way out of bounds it was untrue. he should have from the beginning repudiating that kind of rhetoric. that level of hatefulness in a questioner in an audience he was appearing before. >> i'm not going to ask the obvious question. i know people are waiting for. do you think this will impact trump in the polls and his supporters?
3:09 am
but i wonder if you believe that there is a different approach here from trump not -- you know, canceled an appearance yesterday and not speaking about it even through twitter which we know he does often up to this point. >> no, i don't think this is a radically different approach. remember, this guy has said things about mexicans, black people. he said things about veterans. this is not new. this is not surprising. and, remember, he didn't go to red state. he was disinvited from red state for what he said about megyn kelly. i don't think this will make that much of a difference in how he responds. i think most of his concerns are disingenuous on the one hand you have a bunch of people saying we want trump to condemn this. why? he's never done it in the past. on the right you have republicans saying that's going too far. why? when plenty of them have been fostering the birther nonsense for seven years. i don't think any of this is
3:10 am
legitimate. it's about taking down trump. >> good to have you with us. >> thanks guys. >> everybody be sure to stay with us. coming up, we'll have live reports. an interview at 7:30 with star jones. she'll be talking about trump's campaign and addressing diversity in the 2016 campaign. cuba and the u.s., both preparing for the historic arrival of pope francis today. we'll take you live to havana. ahead, a tornado touched down in kansas. homes were destroyed. there were injuries. you're going to see the damage yourself. also, now most of the mystery of baby doe is solved in terms of who she is. what happened to her and what can be the parents' defense strategy? we have our legal expert weighing in there. we allege that mccarthy caused bella's death.
3:11 am
that he did so intentionally. that he and bond took specific steps to keep bella's death a secret and to avoid prosecution. verizon now has one simple plan. just pick a size. small, medium, large and extra large. if you need less data, pick small. if you need more, go with extra large-- a whopping 12 gigs for $80 a month plus $20 per phone. pick a size. change it up anytime. it's the simple way to get the best network. and now, get up to $400 when you switch. only at verizon.

3:15 am
case is captivating this nation since early summer. the police composite image you see there on the left was shared online with more than 50 million times and there is the real little girl on the right woes name we now know. she was nearly three-years-old. >> the break if this heart breaking toews case came thursday when investigators say they received a crucial tip. within 24 hours the mother and her boyfriend were arrested. >> 83 days after we found this little girl on the shoreline we're at last able speak of baby bella. >> in light of the evidence that we have developed, i have authorized the arrest of michael patrick mccarthy, age 35 of bella's murder. >> police say he is not the by

ological father. joey jackson is joining us now. joey, i want to ask you, the police said they believe her life ended as an act of vie learns in the place where she should have felt the safest in her home. when we are see this arraignment, will we learn how she died? >> we will learn on monday how she died. i will presume, obviously, through the the prosecution the prosecutor will make that very clear. they are piecing together a lot. moving back for a people, it first shows how important the community is. the neighborhood is, technology is, with respect to twitter and facebook as you mentioned, you know, listen, 50 million times this being out there and people looking and piecing it together and so that gave them the tip they needed to do the search warrant. so with respect to the cause of death the autopsy, the examination. we won't learn initially, because it's a first appearance, formally lodging the charges, allowing the process to continue, detaining the people
3:17 am
responsibility as we move forward and they allow the case, i think they'll have to make that clear to the jury and the public. >> let's talk about rachelle bond. she had two other kids taken from herbie the state and how could she have another one, is child protect service liable in anyway? >> reporter: it's a difficult. when you look at child protective service, they're sprechd if resources, not at all in terms of what they need to do to look at every family independently. you have to lock at what every family is doing with regard to custody in every case. the other two that you were tan away from her. as a result, she didn't have them. by all indications with this child, bella, few look at the facebook posting, i love you so much. the love of my life. you mean everything to me. >> that is a specific articulate
3:18 am
ran to take a child away. we know that apparently child protective services was involved in bella's case a couple years ago. it did not rides to the level to take bella away from her. which is most unfortunate. the other issue, of course, she's claiming she had nothing to do with it. early indications she is pointing the indications, my boyfriend did it. who knows, maybe she was very fit taking care of the child in a responsible way but the boyfriend intervened in such a way to cause the debt and the mom could not protect bell larks unfortunately. >> that boyfriend, remember, is charged with purchased. we'll talk more about this throughout the morning. joey jackson, we appreciate it. thank you. >> thank you, christy. thousands of migrants stuck in limbo as countries if europe clash over how to solve this christ. we'll take you to the croatia border.

two massive wildfires in california the valley and butte fires have bern burned around 140,000 acres near napa and sacramento. rain and cooler weather have helped firefighters contain between 30 and 50% of those wildfires. >> cleanup ahead today in kansas? at left a one tornado destroyed hoemsz, damaged a high school, a camp ground. this is southwest of kansas city last night. now, thankfully, nobody was killed. we do know there were minor injury, though, one witness said they heard a roar and moments later this. hit. >> it happened really fast. i looked out the window. i saw almost like a wall of leaves coming over the trees and the camper in effect to me started rolling and then ours started rolling. i heard a roar and just everything tumbling. >> more than two months after his escape, new arrests this morning in the prison break of

3:30 am
morning, pope frances. he's in the air, right now. at two hours into his flying fromhome to havana. the first leg of the historic nine-day trip to the u.s. and to cube barks forces a schedule of pope frances's schedule is packed from the moment he touches down. alongside cuban president fidel castro, minutes after exiting the plane. we are covering this story from across the globe this morning. our vatican correspondent is in rome. what's happening there in havana ahead of his arrival? what have you heard about the folks in cube be and what they're feeling as he heads will? >> there is a lot of excitement. this is the first latin american pope who will speak to the people in his native spanish. we are expecting hundreds of thousands of people to pour in.
3:31 am
he will be seeing raul castro for the first time he will accompany the poem pope on all three masses he will celebrate in cuba. >> that never happens before. it speaks to the political relationship these men have struck up in a short period of time. >> we know the pope has been critical of dictators in the past. we also know that he is planning on meeting with fidel castro. do we have any indication what kind of conversations will be had between the leaders there in cuba and the pope? >>. >> reporter: absolutely and what the pope says if private is different than he says in public. to criticize cuba's system. until recently didn't offer any pace in religion. the pope talking to cuban vooints students via satellite. he says a leader is someone who passes on leadership qualities to others and a tyrant as
3:32 am
someone that holds on to those qualities for himself. interesting comments, the pope is hours away from touching down in cuba. >> i go to you now the pope as i said is on the plane with supporters to cuba. you have traveled with him before. how opened is he with reporters? >> well, when he's on the plane, he's got 12 hours on the outbound flight to talk to reporters and another twifl headed back from the u.s. that will be a little shorter. that's when he gives the big interview, when he's heading back. they don't want to give the interview going into the trip in case it might overshadow the trip. it's interesting to be on the pap pal plane. the pope comes back, he greets the reporters one by one. in some cases there is up to 100 reporters on these flights. he certainly takes time with them and says hello and wishes them well in their work. the pap pal plane is, of course, a regular plane.
3:33 am
they do kid it out for the pope. he gets a bigger seat t. journalists are in the back. you get a special pap pal pillow with the insignia of the pope, the crest of the pope and a nice selection of wine, mostly for the journalists benefit, let's say that. so you get some time on the outbound flight to reaction and to prepare for what is a very heavy and packed schedule in the next ten day, christy. >> i am sure. we appreciate the insight thank you very much a. pap pal pillow. i wonder if they're softer than others. wondering, tuesday, remember the pope is headed to the u.s. a lot of americans are wondering whether the holy father will address the sexual abuse in the church. earlier i asked a senior vatican analyst on the plane with the pope right now, in fact, john allen, we asked him what he
3:34 am
thoughts could happen. >> i do expect he is going to thank you about the importance of defending the traditional christian concept of the family, which, of course, means a union between a man and a him who. let's not forget that the real reason that he's coming to america in the first place is to attend a world meeting of families in philadelphia, where this subject is certainly going to come up. i don't think you are going to hear from him a specific defunsiation of a recent u.s. supreme court decision in favor of gay marriage. i do think you will hear him talk about the needs to defend the traditional concept of the family. >> in terms of sex abuse victims, i do expect pope frances to talk about the damage that the clerical sexual abuse scandals have done to the catholic church in the united states. i would think an especially logical time for that to come up is when he gathers the people in
3:35 am
washington, d.c. to hear him. although the vatican has not yet officially confirmed this. we are also expecting at some place along the line in the united states, pope frances will hold a meeting with victims of sexual abuse, of course, the very first time any pope met with zimt victims of sex abuse was benedict the xvi. he met to meet with sex abuse victims five other times. pope frances has done so once. i think it would be extremely impossible for him to come to the united states and not meet with victims of sex abuse again. >> we continue to have special coverage of the pope's visit to the u.s. and havana. chris cuomo will be live at 4:00 p.m. eastern. tensions escalate between russia and the u.s. after russia sends fighter jets to syria. how does this affect a u.s. fight against isis? plaque psoriasis...

3:39 am
the library never closes. it makes it so much better to do homework when you're at home. internet essentials from comcast. helping to bridge the digital divide. new this morning, defense secretary ash carter is talkin to his russian counterpart after moscow sent military troops, tanks and arms to syria to help the government in ground contact. >> that is not all t. latest round of fighter planes they sent capable of air-to-air combat. now as we know, the u.s. is conducting airstrikes in the country on isis targets. let's bring in cnn military analyst, general, good to have you, when we discuss the capabilities of the jets that
3:40 am
are being sent by russia, is it credible to believe at all that they would use these to go after u.s. resources? >> no, not at all, victor, these are close air support aircraft. i think they are defending the assad regime. that's their mooim primary purpoprimary. the regime is on the verge of collapsing. mr. putin has air forces to go after his enemy. >> put this into context for us the entry now into syria as we know the u.s. is conduct these strikes in syria against isis. >> what we are talking primarily is again the defence of the outside regime. russia has seen mr. assad is in trouble. they have two major bases in
3:41 am
syria. the naval base of khartoum, which is critically important for their various sea fleets. all of those things are important as an allie to mr. putin. she defending mr. assad as his allies. he is realizing there is a potential of him falling. he is bulking up a bit. from a standpoint of isis, mr. putin said he will go ever a the terrorist organization. we are talking for a potential alliance against the terrorists and beefing up of the assad regime. >> one. you talk about with potential there. although as you say moscow is going to defend its allie in the regime with syria. we know what the u.s. intentions are there. there is a potential for something catastrophic here if you have someone firing in the wrong direction at the wrong troops. >> not only that, not only firing on the direction of the wrong troops, which you will
3:42 am
have if russia is defending the assad regime. he's going after some of the elements of the free syrian army, which we have supported. beyond that, you also have to consider the fact that you got air forces in the same general area and that's why it's quick i critically important to coordinate. that's what mr. carter has been doing over and mr. kerry have been dock over the last few days is saying, hey, we have not coordinated with the russian army and military over the last several years. we are have to get measures in place so there is no accidental engagement between russian forces and coalition forces in either the air or potentially on the ground. but right now, we don't have ground forces in syria. we do have alliance in a small number with the free syrian army. >> leiutenant general, good to have you on. this thank you very much. ahead another police take down on video. the disturbing encounter between

3:49 am
. >> he's going down. he's a kid. officer. >> yeah, you take a look at this video and you wonder if this is proper policing or if there is excessive force being used here. it's a question this morning that's circulating. this video is surfacing of police officers tackling and arresting a 16-year-old in california. the teen emilio mayfield says he was just trying to catch the bus. >> now, police say the teen was obstructing a lane for buses only and refused to move. they claim the situation escalated when he tried to grab
3:50 am
an officer's baton. the teenager's family is now forcing a formal complaint against the stockton police department. >> i feel trauma advertised by that and i felt like i was beaten and slammed on the floor. i see myself as a great young man, successful in school. >> let's bring in cnn legal analyst joey jackson. the police spokesperson says that the officers were within their right. you heard from the young man there. what's your take? >> good morning to you, victor, good morning, christy. any case like this really turns on two points, that is was the force reasonable and number two was it necessary? now, there is always going to be two narratives of it. from the police's perspective, he was jaywalking and resisting. from the community's perspective and the teen's perfect e specttive, he was not resition, only a fine and the resistance, was the force necessary or was it reasonable in anyway?
3:51 am
and did they have to go to that extent? so that will be the analysis applied. in the event that it moved forward. it was moved to a jury, you'd ask the jury to look at it and to follow the questions. is this reasonable? is this necessary? you decide the answer is no, you know what you have to do. >> here's what stockton police told our affiliate about the incident. joey. they can a listen. >> reporter: as you can see in the video our officer had his baton out but the suspect was also grabbing and holding on to that baton. as law enforcement officers we cannot and will not allow anyone to take our weapon. >> so based on what you are seeing, do you see this 16-year-old as a true threat to these officers? >> and that's the critical question, christy, because what at analysis is implied here is the force used necessary or appropriate to any threat that's posed? clearly you never want an officer to take or have a baton
3:52 am
taken. but at the same time, it's about principles of deescalation achlts are there reasonable methods and alternatives to calm the situation down as opposed to escalating, getting into an argument with a teen and have officers come with back-up and throw you to the ground. again, there are those narratives the teen didn't resist and the teen just complied, we wouldn't be here, but at the same time did have it to escalate to the level that it resulted to this and, of course, the teen brought into custody, hit with the baton, tackled to the ground. was that excessive? that, of course, is going to be what a jury will have to examine and decide. >> fortunately, there is the video that helps in that analysis moving forward. joey jackson, thanks, very much. >> thank you very much. we are following breaking news, police make an arrest in mysterious highway shootings in phoenix. we will tell you what we have learned so far. >> plus, you remember the story of the drum major killed during a hazing witch wal t. family

4:01 am
arresting leslie allen merritt, wallace police say he is linked to four of the 11 shootings on interstate 10 randoming targeting passing vehicles there. >> the governor was quick to tweet, we got him. that was after the arrest. although, terrified arizonians will finally be able to breathe easier. there may be other suspects out there. nick valencia, what have you learned about the arrest? >> good morning, christy, we don't know if charges have been filed normally just yet. we understand police will chargele with discharge of a firearm anding a dpra rate issed assault. this morning they believe they have the person that started this shooting spree in custody. after more than two weeks of terror, police make an arrest in a string of highway shootings. >> the weapon and the man that we believe was responsible for what started this spree in arizona is in custody. >> though authorities have declined to name the suspect.
4:02 am
two government officials told cnn the detained man's name him. he was arrested at an arizona wal-mart in connection with four of the 11 shootings. most of those occurred along busy interstate 10. >> he was arrested at that wal-mart with a woman and a five-year-old child. they were not taken into custody. and he was. >> reporter: a phoenix city councilman told cn the break in the case came after the suspect pawned a 9mm handgun. police say lab results show it was the same gun used in four of the highway shootings. >> that subject is in custody because the weapon that he owned is forensically linked to these crimes. >> reporter: the suspect is only connected to the first four shootings. police are unclear whether there are more suspects. >> are there others out there?
4:03 am
othere copycats? that is possible. we will continue to investigate. >> reporter: as of september 10th, there have been no other shootings reported. friday night's arrest, police accuse the suspect of starting the spree on august 29th. late last night, affiliate knxv tried to get the reaction from per right's father would would you like to tell me about him or say anything on his behalf? >> i'll say everything on his behalf. whoever said he's the i-10 shooter is a moron. have a good night. >> authorities did emphasize there could be others out there, including copycats. again, this suspect tied only to the first four shootings of the 11 that happened over the course of the last three weeks. victor, christy. >> nick have a lensia we appreciate it. thank you. >> this hour, vice president joe biden will have breakfast with the congressional black caucus
4:04 am
as biden is getting big support to run for president a. letter from 50 top democratic fund raisers is now circulateing. it's urging him to enter the race. the obama-biden administration has been a spectacular success. but much work remains to be done. to finish the job, america needs a leader who is respected both home and abroad and who understands the real challenges facing american families. in our opinion, the next president must be joe bind. if he announces he's running, we're all in. it's a campaign we know he will win. he recently said he does not know if he has it in him or if his family is going to be able to approve this campaign. joining me now a political editor at new york 1 news and i want to start with you the "wall street journal" reporting that it's not a matter of if biden will run but when he will
4:05 am
announce, he's leaning towards running. zplp we'll get to. that do you believe, indeed, he has made the decision? >> victor the way it works in politics is almost everybody who runs above the level of say city council thinks there is a president lurking within them. so what we know about joe biden, he's run twice before for president he has served for eight years as vice president. clearly, immensely, enjoys the job. seems to have a lot to say. you know, in 2012, when he was running for re-election he was sort of haunting the back woods of iowa and new hampshire even though he was needed on the campaign trail elsewhere. this is clearly something he has given a lot of time and attention to. i've always sort of assumed as i always do with these folks that if there is any kind of reasonable shot at becoming the most powerful person in the world, they will take that shot. it looks like joe biden is
4:06 am
getting ready to do exactly that. >> so, ben, obviously, we herd in the debates and the campaign strategies that these candidates are preparing to run against hillary clinton. but if joe biden gets in, and shows to be successful in these early polls, how does that change the strategy of the top republicans running for the gop nomination? >> i don't know it changes that much. honestly, what it will do is give them more time to debate one another and to focus on their primary. because you know your opponent is wrapped up in their own debate in their own fight for the nomination. instead of it just being a sail through situation for hillary clinton, which many people thought exactly was going to happen. bernie sanders what he has been able do is truly incredible. i don't think it's so much what bernie sanders believes in, it's that's how dissatisfied the democratic party is with hillary
4:07 am
clinton as their candidate. they want an alternative to hillary clinton. you don't let this get out unless you are going to run in my opinion. it reminds me of ben carson back at cpac earlier this year when there was a draft ben carson. he knew he was running. to build hype and excitement about what you are going to do already. so i would be shocked now at this point if joe biden didn't run and hillary clinton is in some serious trouble if he chooses to. honestly, i think his time table. he doesn't have to jump if right now. he can wait a long time. the longer he waits, i think more people will like him as an alternative. thank goodness you are running. because we have just not been happy with hillary clinton. >> errol, we know that the vice president will be at the congressional black caucus breakfast this morning and a senior member representative, emanuel cleaver said many members of the caucus like the
4:08 am
vice president but have pledged their support to hillary clinton. is there much that he can do today or the next coming weeks to kind of switch some of those allegiances? >> oh, absolutely. look back in 2008 the congressional black caucus almost to a member had pledged support or decided to stay neutral. but many of them had to pledge support to hillary clinton and they switched after the first couple of primaries and barack obama caught on fire, john lewis in particular comes to mind. he simply switched his allegiance. we know jim clyburn of the all important state of south carolina. one of the first primary states. he has not endorsed hillary clinton and is now on the record saying if she loses the first two primaries. everything is up for grabs, as far as allegiances, alignments, endorsements and, indeed the fate of the nation. this will be a tricky time. it's very important it be the congressional plaque caucus
4:09 am
where this conversation starts. hillary clinton, you know, she was polling. she got 27% of the vote in a lot of key states. it's really where in many cases she lost, in many ways, she lost the election in 2008. so this is very bad news for hillary clinton politically speak and all eyes on joe biden to see what he wants to do. >> ten seconds. >> victor the biggest reason why joe biden has a chance here is within have you the number one word people associate with you is not being trust worthy, hillary clinton has had that word connected with her for weeks on end, it is incredibly hard to overcome that. that's why if you are joe biden, how do you not run? this is the perfect scenario for you. >> these aren't just supporters. these are big money democratic fund raisers who are coming in. this is quite attractive. thank you both. >> thanks, victor. meanwhile, we're waiting to hear from donald trump today. he's going to be in iowa.
4:10 am
a big question a lot of people are asking is will he address his latest controversy involving the claim that president obama is muslim and the president isn't even american. republicans were split on the issue with candidates such as rick santorum, who refused to criticize. listen to this. >> people are entitled to their opinions. we have a first amendment for a reason. because people can stand up and say what they want. you don't have to agree w. you don't have to like it. >> do you believe president obama is a muslim, senator? >> do i? the president says he's a christian. look, ladies and gentlemen, i'm not playing this game that you guys want to play. the president can defend himself. he doesn't need rick santorum to defend him. he's got you doing that very, very well. so cut it out. >> as a democrat, senator bernie sanders tweeted a btd the issue in part, quote, trump must apologize to the president and the american people and his
4:11 am
rival hillary clinton weighed in. >> he knew or should have known what that man was asking was not only way out of bound, it was untrue. and he should have from the beginning repudated that kind of rhetoric. >> that level of hateful ness in a questioner in an audience that he was appearing before. >> joining us now with the latest cnn, joining us live from mackinaw island, michigan. where many republican candidates are today. what are you hearing there today? >> reporter: well, christy, we've seen many of trumps rivals really come out and try to take full advantage, you heard from chris christie, senator lindsey graham calling on trump saying he should have in that moment with that voter in new hampshire come out and repuddiate that sort of rhetoric. we are hearing from senator ted cruz and rick santorum, as you heard, really decline to comment. really decline to get in on the
4:12 am
frame of the scene, saying they wouldn't have necessarily corrected that voter at the time. but it was jeb bush here in mackinaw island who devated from his stump speech a bit last night perfectly to get in on the fray on this here's what jeb bush said last night. >> barack obama is a talented man. by the way, he's an american, he's a christian, his problem isn't the fact that he was born here or his problem is he's a progressive liberal that tears down anybody that disagrees with him. >> reporter: and i asked jeb bush three times after those comments if he believes that donald trump should apologize for this he said, i spoke to that. i spoke to that, but clearly not wanting to go any farther. now, donald trump, meanwhile, he has been uncharacteristically quiet on this, his campaign abruptly can selling a speech last night in south carolina, saying he has a business deal
4:13 am
instead the campaign for their part continues to say that donald trump did not hear the question from that voter. it will be interesting, chris tea, if donald trump keeps this defense up as he hits the campaign trail in iowa. >> we appreciate i. haunk. listen, stay tuned. a little later this hour, we are talking live with a former celebrity contestant star jones. we will talk about drump trump and the diers isty as well. the fate of thousands of migrants, european countries are pointing fingers over how to handle this crisis. we are taking you to the hung aaron-croatia border for a live report. also, it was a boston toddler's death that captured america. she has been identified. you are looking there at baby bella. her mother is in police custody. today, police are still searching for more answers, though, into her death. was from a motive? remember her boyfriends is charged with murder.

>> happy 2nd birthday, monkey, yay, whew! >> this is bella at her 2nd birthday. friday, authorities revealed she is the mystery toddler whose composite picture captivated millions when she was found wrapped in a trash bag on a pawn shore in june. >> and the tragedy of her death is compounded by the fact that her short life ended not by illness or accident but we believe by an act of violence in the very place where she had -- where she should have felt safest, in her home. >> authorities had determined earlier this year from pollen on her polka dot pants that baby doe was likely from the boston area. according to officials, it was a tip this week that led them on an intense 24 hour search, resulting in the arrest of michelle's mother, michelle bond and her boyfriends, michael mccarthy. mccarthy charged with murder, bonds charged with accessory after the fact. >> we allege that mccarthy

this week, here's your loo
4:31 am
. we are following breaking news, a suspect in phoenix, arizona in custody for allegedly shooting at vehicles in passing weeks. he is connected to four of the
4:32 am
ran dodge shootings on interstate 1230i6r7b89s will have charges soon. they say it's possible there is a copycat out there. joe biden is calling supporters suggesting the vice president is more likely than not to enter the 2016 race. this comes on the heels of letters. coming up in a live report in just a moment. new this morning the army general who investigated sergeant bowe bergdahl's actions in afghanistan says he should not get jail time. authorities say bergdahl deserted. the investigator says he didn't find any information to suggest bergdahl was sympathetic to the taliban. bergdahl was captured and held by the taliban for five years and released only after a controversial prison swap last year. let's bring in cnn correspondent martin savage there live in texas.
4:33 am
martin, what else did this investigator say? >> reporter: good morning, christy, good morning, victor, it's just too bad there were not cameras allowed inside this article 32 hearing. a preliminary hearing. there were stunning allegations brought forward. this is a hearing to determine if there may be a court marshall. on the first day, the prosecution brought commanders for bergdahl, one they were shocked to learn he had gone off his post in afghanistan in 2009. then they outlined what was the difficult and dangerous ordeal, how one man had literally refocused the u.s. mission in afghanistan. >> that came to find bergdahl. game two, then the defense comes forward. they had stunning revelations. number one, the prosecution and defence announce they agree no soldiers died looking for bowe bergdahl. this was a huge early contention. again, the military says in its investigation they revealed not
4:34 am
a single soldier died. they had a hard time finding soldiers wounded. then as you point out you had major kenneth daul. he led the investigation. he said he shouldn't get jail time. two, he was delusional and left his post because he had very odd thoughts. the other. that came forward, this from the interrogator who debriefed bergdahl about the suffering he endured from his four years and 11 months, in fact, as this department of defense debriefer retold what bergdahl went through, he choked up and teared up twice. he said that bowe bergdahl was quote an army of one. he had to fight the enemy more than four years and 11 months. you cannot underestimate how difficult that was. so this was a dramatic sort of different saga and nar racing we
4:35 am
have heard about the bowe bergdahl event. back to you, guys. martin savage, we so appreciate it. thank you, sir. let's bring in marine attorney gary solas. good to have you with us here. >> thank you, sir. >> let's jump off what we heard from martin savage there and this claim that sergeant bergdahl was delusional and had odd thoughts in this psychological defense. what role does that play in the decision to either recommend that or if the decision rather that bergdahl will face court marshall or not. >> well, it may influence the decision, but it's not a defense. i think that it's clear that bergdahl knew what he was doing. while he may have had delusional thoughts, that doesn't raise to an insanity defense. so i think it wi have no practical effect on whether the case goes forward. should it go to trial, it could have an impact on sentence. >> let's talk about the sentencing now. because we heard from major general kenneth dahl, the leader
4:36 am
in this investigation, interviewed bergdahl a day-and-a-half, said jail time would be inappropriate. what weight does that carry? >> well, it's not his call to make. it's the call of the conveneing authority if there is a pretrial agreement, between the conveneing authority and bergdahl or a call of the military judge and it's a judge allen or a call to the jury. but it's clear that this case from the get-go, has not been really appropriate for confinement. i think the issue is going to be if there is a pretrial agreement between bergdahl and the army, which i foresee, whether or not the discharge will be a bad conduct discharge or an honorable discharge or possible a dishonorable discharge and how much penalty he will have to pay in terms of monetary punishment. >> so in your opinion, not appropriate for confinement. we heard also from major general
4:37 am
kenneth dall. how much is that the basic philosophy that four years and 11 months he has been confined enough? is that the center of a decision here? >> well, i think so. practically speaking, that's true. i mean, from a strictly legal viewpoint it doesn't matter. of course, it does matter. you have to take into consideration the circumstances surrounding the offense and given those circumstances, i think that most of us would agree that further confinement of the united states would not appropriate in this case. i don't foresee him going to jail. >> what is the credence that's given to the accounts of some of those who served alongside him, who are a bit more critical than obviously those put forward by the defense and some of the emotional technical that we have heard about this hearing yesterday. >> well, looking at this in terms of a lawyer, a military lawyer. not much t. question is, what can the government prove? not what others who are not
4:38 am
before the court might be saying to the press. >> all right. gary solas, thank you so much for joining us on the inside as we learn more about what is happening during this article 32 hearing with bowe bergdahl. we will see if this reaches the level of court marshall. thank you, sir. pope frances like in right now to cuba ahead of his trip to the united states. he has already helped to broker peace. so what defines success for this trip and what do we expect also? the black lives patz movement didn't come up during the gop debate this week. should it have been discussed, starr jones is weighing in on that. thank you for calling. we'll be with you shortly. yeah right... xerox predictive analytics help companies provide a better and faster customer experience. hello mr. kent. can i rebook your flight? i'm here! customer care can work better. with xerox. wait i'm here! mr. kent?

coming up on 18 minutes before the hour. pope frances is a few hours into his flight headed to havana, cuba. it's a part of a historic trip to the u.s. he heads to washington on tuesday. before traveling to new york and philadelphia, we're expecting huge crowds here in cuba, so what does the pope have to do for this trip to be a success? to talk about that, we have edward beck cnn religious commentator and the sunday mass. faurkts good to have you back. >> hey, victor. >> the approval of the first catholic church since the start of the cuban revolution but also dwindling numbers of catholics there. what does he have to do?
4:43 am
>> i think he wants to talk, victor, about the continuation of the reconciliation that has begun between the united states and cuba. first of all the normalization of relationships. as we know, he was important in brokering that deal. it's no mistake that he is stopping in cuba before he comes to the united states. i think what he also needs to do is push the castro regime rather gently on more changes for the people. how about the diplomatic relationships with their own people now? there is still a lot of suffering. there has been advances, yes. the pope would say the church would like even more advances. the church would love to recover properties it has lost. it's interesting that fidel and raul castro attended a jesuit prep school now a military academy. i think the pope would like to have that back as a jet wit prep school. some of that kind of
4:44 am
mortalization has not yet occurred. while the vatican the holy city has never broken diplomatic relationships with cuba. it is believed engagement was the better process. i think the pope wants to push these human rights issues there. >> there appears to be a personal affinity from one direction or the other, raul castro towards the pope. we don't know how the pope feels personally about president castro. he said this after their meeting in play. if the pope continues to speak like this, sooner or later i will start praying again, i will return to the! church. raul castro promises to attend masses in cuba. what do you make of this? >> i thought it was rather remarkable. he has this commune yvette taketatorship that is aetheistic. the head of that regime saying i'm so impressed with this man, i will return to the church.
4:45 am
remember, castro is impressed pope frances is critiqueing capitalism as castro does as well. so they might be alined in a idology that capitalism is in need of certain kind of reformation. however, what's rationalable to me is that he's willing to open up to the church. in all these years, a man can bring me back. someone like me. i thought it was a remarkable statement for the head of the cuban sect. >> hopefully, we will learn more between the meeting with the pope and fidel castro. we will, of course, continue the conversation this weekend and next as the trip moves from cuba to the u.s. thanks, so much. >> thank you, victor. >> christy. >> she's a lawyer. a celebrity a. woman's rights advocate. next, we will talk to starr jones. she has a lot to stay about issues surrounding the 2016 presidential race including black lives matter and donald trump.

4:51 am
don junior, eric and ivanka, they're the kind of children, that make me proud. >> do you think that he is -- if he made it as president, do you support him? >> absolutely not. i've told him that to his face. i told him several years ago, when he made some statements about president obama at the time. and i called him myself. i spoke to him. i spoke to members of his family and his staff. and i said that i thought those comment, questioning the president's birth origin, i think they were race baiting, and i thought it was not indicative of the donald that i knew. if in fact they continued, that i'd have no choice but to distance myself. and i mean, i'm just that kind of person. >> sure. >> i want to put it out to you ahead of time. i don't think that is anything indicative of what good business is. we know that diversity and inclusion is smart for business.
4:52 am
we know that by 2050, the browning of america will have come. i'm not talking about skin color. i'm talking about diversity from ethnicities, southwest lgbt, as well as disabled, veterans and women, if you don't embrace that in business, you'll be of it, plain and simple. >> simple team think box of his acumen in business, because he's been so successful in the business that they can translate that to the government. but those are two different entities? >> but also, if you're going to be smart in business, you have to be smart in the future of business. the future of business includes all americans. >> but do you think he did not do that? >> no, with his immigration policy as it is, i would suggest that is the least inclusive policy that will forward to business. you know, your consumer base is going to look a different way. don't you want your workforce to be that same way?
4:53 am
that's what i do every single day. i can't imagine that donald, as smart as he is, does not see it. then i have to look behind the statements and see where does it really come from. and what we have to tell ourselves is, dividing each other to accomplish a greater american does not speak to american ideals and values. >> so, let me ask you this, who do you think would be the best president to help support the quality for women? >> there's no question that hillary clinton, she comes head and shoulders above everyone on equal pay for equal work. and i mean, this is the work that she's done all of her entire professional career. yes, indeed, i think everybody knows i'm a hillary clinton supporter. but more importantly, i support candidates that support issues that impact on my life and my friend's lives. >> that's what people do. >> right. it's got to be local. politics has to be local. 40% of women are now heads of
4:54 am
household. so what that tells you, equal pay is not a women's issue. it's a family issue. if a woman is the head of the household and/or making the most money, if she's still getting 22% less than a man is getting, she can't afford the adequate health care that she wants for her kid. she can't send them to day care, afterschool programs. she can't extend their education. all the things that a family needs to grow to make a community better. so if you're not on equal pay for equal work, you definitely don't get my vote. >> do you have any idea why she's in atlanta? >> she is here because there is a diversity career fair. i want to get into this as well. there's been this strong strong criticism into black lives matter. movement did not come into play in the gop debates this last time around. that race didn't play into it. bats your reaction to that? >> it's just that we have to start to make diversity and
4:55 am
inclusion a part of the front-runner on the issues. because it's not a secondary issue. if we want to grow america, we need to speak to americans' ideas and ideals and values. and you think to yourself, what are we saying about america if we don't embrace people with different backgrounds, experiences, values, religions. we don't want to alienate other people. that's really what i do in a professional network now. i spend my time connecting businesses, corporations with diverse individuals. the businesses have made a conscious decision saying this is not just the right thing, this is the smart and business savvy thing to do. >> and there are qualified them out there? >> oh, absolutely. and my job is to keep that pipeline filled with qualified applicants. across the country, we're posting career fairs. we're having one in atlanta this week on monday. we'll number boston the following week. i'm telling, this is the way you move america forward.

5:01 am
needs a leader who is respected both home and abroad and who understands the real challenges facing american families in my opinion, the next president must be joe biden. 7 if he announces he's running, we're all in. suzanne malveaux is there where candidates are set to speak today. i'm pretty sure this is part of the discussion. maybe not on stage, but definitely there among the people in the crowd. >> reporter: that's absolutely right, victor, when you think about it, you listen to the statement and certainly i hear a campaign slogan somewhere in there. because this is the kind of thing that at least his supporters want to hear. and they want to hear there's big money to back joe biden. all of the signs are pointing more likely that he's going to jump into the race. if you take a look at what the vice president is doing but also what his supporters are doing. according to "the wall street journal" this morning, you have folks who are actually out there, they're not only raising money, trying to figure out
5:02 am
plans to raise more money. they're also planning to hire staff, they're planning to hone his message. what i'm looking at, victor, the timing of all of this, the critical, if you will, the next couple of months will make the difference here. we're talking about first of all october 13th, three weeks away. that's the cnn democratic debate. does he decide he's going to jump in. he'll have a national tv audience. there are only four of these debates before the iowa caucuses so that might be a critical window. but as vice president he still has the national stage. look to october 22nd, a couple weeks away. that's a key moment for hillary clinton. she's going to before a congressional committee testifying on benghazi, surely the e-mails are coming up. how does she perform for that congressional hearing could make a big difference on whether or not he jumps in right afterwards. finally take a look at mid-november. that's when you get hit with a series of deadlines to actually register for those early caucus
5:03 am
states. those early primary states. he's got to make those deadlines. and that is what they're looking at now, the timing of this. more and more likely, victor, if does look like an if. but perhaps a when. we're still reading tee leaves here but it certainly looks like it's heading in that direction. finally, i want to tell you one of the reasons why this is likely. take a look at how he's performing in the polls. if you look at new hampshire, the latest new hampshire poll, bernie sanders coming in at 46%. hillary clinton at 37%. but joe biden at 37% without throwing had his hat in the ring. that's what they're seeing in the early stage and the national polls. saying people want him to take a shot and give another chance. >> and some softening of numbers for clinton there not only there but in iowa as well.
5:04 am
suzanne malveaux in manchester, thank you so much. meanwhile, when are we going to hear from donald trump? will it be today? will he address his latest controversy while in iowa? it involves the handling that he claims that the president is muslim. republicans were split on the issue of even confirming that the president is christian. but let's hear what jeb bush said. >> barack obama is a talented man. and by the way, he's an american. he's a christian, his problem isn't the fact that he was born here or what his state is. he's a progressive liberal that tears down anybody that days agrees with him. >> joining us live from mackinaw island, michigan. we heard what jeb bush said there. but there were other candidates who i guess where a 180 from what we heard from the florida
5:05 am
former governor? >> reporter: that's right, victor, we heard from many of the candidates and many rivals are coming out to condemn donald trump in the way he handled himself in that moment. we've heard from chris christie. we've heard from senator lindsey graham who said in that moment, donald trump really should have repudiated that letter. chris christie saying he should do so. also ted cruz really refusing to criticize donald trump and how he handled himself. we heard from ted cruz in greenville, south carolina, last night, and he got a little testy with all of the reporters and questions over this controversy. here's how he responded. >> now, i recognize is this what the media lives to do, stir up controversy. you can ask your question. i'm going to give you my answer. you may not have to like my answer. but you don't get to give my
5:06 am
answer for me. what i think the american people are interested is not the food fight that reporters are trying to stir up. let's talk about how we stop radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: i asked you about -- >> next question. >> reporter: and donald trump has been uncharacteristically silent on this. he's been deflecting reporters questions on this since this happened on thursday. he cancelled abruptly a campaign appearance last night. his campaign saying he needed to close a very important business deal. for their part, victor, the campaign said donald trump did not hear the question from the voter, that is why he didn't necessarily correct them on the spot. so it will be interesting to see as he hits the campaign trail in iowa if he continues to be the line of defense. >> we'll see, thanks. more updates and breaking news we've been following now.

5:19 am
for any liability on the part of family services? >> unfortunately, christi is different but there's something in massachusetts called the massachusetts court claim act. it prevents suits against the suit. there's an immunity, and they do that because of the parade of lawsuits that would follow action or inaction on the part of an agency like this. i don't think there will be any liability as to them. and, at the end of the day, it was not the mother who was allegedly responsible. she assisted after the fact. it was the boyfriend. and they'll say, look, we investigated. we felt she was fit. it was the boyfriend. we could not anticipate or foresee that he would engage in this act of alleged murder. >> still a lot of people wondering if she didn't have custody of her other two children and they were taken away, why did she have custody of bella? that remains to be seen.

you as have sort of the iowa camp. you got folks playing for the new hampshire camp like jeb bush, governor christie, dr. kasich. and they've deputy strong contenders like donald trump, ben carson, governor walker, senator cruz. so it sort of creates this difficult dynamic for some of these candidates to create a presence and break through. >> maria, let me go to you something that happened, and this letter that we've seen this morning from top democratic fund-raisers calling for joe find that get in. saying joe biden is an authentic leader. no one is better prepared for the presidency than joe biden. should this concern hillary clinton? >> no, i think what should concern hillary clinton is continue to make her case to voters each and every single day which is something she has been doing. right now, she remains the
5:35 am
formidable front-runner who has the most resources, that hoo has the best infrastructure, and who continues, again, to focus on issues that americans care about the most. look, if joe biden gets in, absolutely, he will be a formidable candidate. i think it would be terrific for the democratic party. it would be a wonderful debate to have. and if you look at the focus of what democrats are talking about. and the conversation that democrats are having with voters. whether it's hillary clinton, whether it's sanders, and frankly, if joe biden gets in, i'm sure he will do the same thing. that is focusing on the issues that middle class families care about. how to reduce income inequality in the area. and how they can reach the american dream and fulfill their god given potential. you focus on what the republicans are concerned about, the gop debate this past week they are obsessed with defunding planned parenthood which is an
5:36 am
organization that provides health care to millions -- >> let me jump in here. >> lisa -- let me come to lisa about this, we heard an embrace from jeb bush of his brother and the bush name. and he doubled-down on that last night. lisa. i want you to listen. >> next president needs to restore these relationships to create peace and security. and i know how to do this, i know how to do this because i am yes, i am a bush. i happened to see two really good presidents develop relationships with other candidates. [ applause ] >> now, the first debate, lisa, in florida, they call me jeb. now he's saying i am a bush. and there were two great bush frid presidencies. change in strategy, is it going to hurt him in the general? >> i don't think it's going to
5:37 am
hurt him in the general. i think he should embrace his mother back to the republican debate, i think candidates talked about the issues that are all important in this country. and quite frankly, if democrats actually cared about women's health care they would actually want to reallocate that $500 million a year that we spend on planned parenthood and put it towards the comprehensive community health centers that provide women's care like mammograms that quite frankly planned parenthood does not. there are over 13,000 of these centers that provide comprehensive health care to women. there are only 665 planned parenthood across the country that provide any similar kind of care. look, we've spent $500 million annually on planned parenthood where they have an excess of $10
5:38 am
million. we don't need that $500 million, especially the fact that they're facing a criminal investigation. >> i've got to give maria 20 seconds. >> thank you. i hope republicans continue their obsession with planned parenthood with taking away health care to millions and millions of women and middle class families across the country. i hope they continue their obsession with bashing immigrants. >> protecting unborn babies. >> and trying to focus on keeping immigrants out who have contributed so much to society. and i hope they focus these two issues, moving into the general and continue to replace george bush, and i guarantee you i'll be invite you both to the inaugural of the next democratic president of the united states. >> maria, lisa, we got to wrap it there. thank you both. always fun. christi. monitoring military for decision on bowe bergdahl. will he face a court-martial or

5:43 am
in afghanistan said that he should not get jail time. that's important, we'll talk about that in a moment. but authorities say bergdahl deserted. investigators say he didn't find any information that suggests that bergdahl was sympathetic to the taliban. he was released after a controversial prisoner swap last year. let's bring in cnn's correspondent martin savidge. what else stood out from you from what you heard from that investigat investigator? >> reporter: good morning, victor. this is why this is so important, this is really the first time we've heard the official army statement as to why sergeant bowe bergdahl left had his post in afghanistan and what happened to him afterwards. you pointed out the controversy. so many people were upset that five taliban prisoners were exchanged for a person that americans believe was a deserter and perhaps a traitor. the army said they found it very
5:44 am
differently. number one, they say he left his post because he was suffering from mental delusion. then on top of that, they say no u.s. soldiers died looking for bowe bergdahl. that, too, is a hot button issue. there are reports that say as many as seven prisoners died looking for him. the army says they didn't die. he also pointed out, he never gave any information, any classified or any information of military value to his captors. even though had he was predicted as a traitor by some, he never revealed anything. in fact, they say his ability to hold up under torture and deprivation was meritorious. i just want to read you a quote coming from his debriefer talking about bergdahl saying, quote, he's an army of one. he had had no support. he had to fight the enemy alone for 4 years, 11 months, you cannot overestimate how difficult that is. >> and many say that four years
5:45 am
and 11 months, that's enough confinement any day longer would be inappropriate. but what then should be, or how does the defense deal with his walking away? we're not using the word "deserting" here, but leaving the unit. >> reporter: yeah, they use the term awol. what they say, it was known by the army that bowe bergdahl was suffering from a mental disorder. it was a combination of depression and sort of social isolation. they know this because bergdahl actually went into the coast guard first, the coast guard washed him out, saying that he was mentally unfit for duty. the army knew this because they have that report, but they waived any kind of psychiatric evaluation and accepted him in the army. the defense is saying if you had only read what the coast guard had said. you wouldn't have aloud him to be in the army. and none of this would have happened in the first place.

5:53 am
mortar and wing aircraft. they have tanks and personnel carriers there. but i think they're going to be more in a defensive mode around damascus. they're not going to be defensive in nature. that's what the minister of defense told our secretary of defense carter. >> certainly there's not been some connection between russian jets? >> it depends. there's restriction of airspace. that's one thing you want to get into when you talk about military-to-military relationships. that's what the discussions have been. and it's critically important that the ministers of defense are involved in this. let's get behind the secretary of state level. they're talking diplomacy, and the military is actually talking
